Can you post the actual filter you were using at the time?

Are you sure the results aren't correct?

Keep in mind that when you backtest any displaced (DMA) filter, you won't see the crossing over on the chart. The DMA curve shifts positions every day as it moves forward, so when you look at a "backtest" or "historical chart" you'll only see where it did trigger an entry/exit at that time.

What I like to do is plot a MA(14) along with the DMA(28,-14) ... this will show you the position where the DMA(28,-14) was in relation to price at that time. Then, look at how the DMA(28,-14) was approaching the MA(14) ... from above or below. After the crossover, time your entry with the RSI(2) entry filter.
